A 191-hectare business park masterplan is set to be developed by Architectus after Western Sydney Airport appointed them as the design firm on the project.
The park will offer accommodation, retail, office and industrial facilities within 1.5km of the airport terminal that is set to start in 2026.
“The precinct will feature open space, outdoor wellness areas, attractive landscaping and great connectivity from the business park to the terminal,” WSA Co chief executive Graham Millett said.
For the design firm, this commission is a big win as they shift their focus to aviation and transport infrastructure.
This project will be based within the 11,200-hectare aerotropolis that is a part of the the Greater Sydney’s Commission’s regional economic development plan. By 2056 there will be a new Western City focused on the new airport and will be the base for trade and logistics for Sydney.
Census figures show that the Western Sydney population grew by almost 10 per cent (2.16 million people) between 2011-2016 and is one of Australia’s fastest-growing areas.
Architectus is expected to complete the master planning by mid-2019.
